This Thanksgiving vacation we had the opportunity to spend a day with the Hyders!!!!
We had a blast!! First we went out to dinner and then we went to Downtown Disney and walked around. That place is magical! Not just because it's Disney, but it's all the musical artist's playing and trying to sell their CD's. The lights all over the tree's and The hustle and Bustle of everyone enjoying their night! I love everything about it!! Then we drove over to the pier at Huntington Beach. We walked down and got some shakes at Ruby's, Yum!! We Love Ari and Eric! They are so fun to be around and we only wish they lived closer so we could spend more time with them! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, We are so grateful for Friends like Ari and Eric!!
